Kansas State picked up their seventh verbal commit for the class of 2012 on Sunday as Aderius Epps let Coach Billy Snyder and staff know he will be headed to Manhattan next summer. He had been on a visit to Kansas State over the weekend and apparently he and his family liked what they had to see.
Epps is a 6'2" 295 offensive lineman from Cedar Hills High School in Texas that chose the Wildcats over offers from Baylor and TCU.
While he is the first offensive lineman to join the 2012 recruiting class, Epps will certainly be a welcome addition. In verballing to K-State he joins a class that already includes-
Tavarius Bender 6'3" 208 lbs QB Lincoln, NE (Southwest High School)
Ranked the #1 overall recruit in the state of Nebraska and chose the Wildcats over offers from Ohio and Tulane
